Customer Creations: Self-Designed Projects

Within the last couple weeks, we have seen a handful of customer creations… and so many of them were completely self-designed!  It’s imperative that we pay tribute to these talented folks.

Dirk combined Ito Kinu and Sensai to make this ridiculously soft pullover.  We wish you could feel how decadent it is!  Ito yarns are super fine and come in a variety of fibers.  They are best when used in combination to create some really unique finished products.

Deanna loves to create her own designs and has no problem incorporating colorwork.  She made the ecru slouch hat using Debbie Bliss Andes (now on sale!) and worked the colorwork hat (right) using two colors of Malabrigo Arroyo.

Courtney is another customer who makes designing sweaters look easy!  She created this adorable little tee using Queensland Uluru.  She must love it… she was picking up another color of Uluru when she came in to show this off!

Customer Creation: Stash 360

This has got to be one of the most epic stash busters we have ever seen here at ImagiKnit.

Claudia recently finished this remnant project (which she nicknamed “Stash 360″).  She knit 360 squares, all individually steamed, blocked and attached in strips using a single crochet stitch.  She admits she will be unable to look at another square for a few more months, but as you can see, it was well worth it.

Thanks for sharing, Claudia!

Customer Creation: Esme and Miyun’s Ponchos

Time to brag!  Our customers have been in to share some of their newest finished projects.

Erin knit matching ponchos for cousins Esme and Miyun.  Using Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Bulky and the Ann Norling Top Down Capelet pattern, Erin grabbed “Neon” for Esme (left) and “ImagiKnit” for Miyun (right).  We loved being able to see our custom colorway knit up into something so fabulous!

Customer Creation: Suzie’s Khata Sweater

Suzie is certainly no stranger to our blog as she often drops by the shop to show off her latest masterpiece.  Like usual, we couldn’t help but swoon.

Suzie came in with a pattern from an older Vogue Knitting Magazine she had in her stash.  Since the yarn they called for was discontinued, we got creative and found a substitute.  She needed something super lightweight that would drape well but still show off the beautiful lacework.

We showed Suzie our newest yarn from Jade Sapphire, Khata, which is an incredible silk and yak blend.  Thankfully, it was the perfect gauge for her pattern.  The finished product was warm, lusciously soft and just perfect for her pattern.  Thanks for sharing, Suzie!

Customer Creation: Max’s Nuvem Shawl

We must have some pretty patient customers!  After picking up 5 skeins of laceweight yarn from us, Max reappeared 3 months later with this magnificent creation.

Max decided to knit the Nuvem shawl for a friend and chose a gorgeous emerald color in the Malabrigo Lace.

Though this shawl may seem daunting, you should know that it requires absolutely no purling!  It’s soft, super warm and light as a cloud.  Max’s version was so decadent we all wanted to curl up in it and fall asleep.

Max told us he got to a mind-blowing 1200 stitches by the end.  Since it is worked from the center out, it got larger and larger by the row.  Guess how long it took him to bind off the shawl?  5.5 hours!

Thanks for sharing your finished project with us, Max!  If you want to make your own, you can check out the Nuvem shawl here and our full selection of gorgeous laceweight yarns.
